camouflage sensory bin

Great for not only sensory play but also for teaching kids about how some animals and reptiles keep themselves safe and also hunt. 

In this bin there is only-
rocks-(costed me any $4 at a local yard sale all new in bags 3 different kinds, so there were many different feels)
toy animals- (cost me $2 at a local yard sale, again most had different feels to them for sense of touch.)
and toy digger and tweezers (we had for awhile)

I hidden some snakes and lizards in and around the rocks and then added the fake tree and bigger snake.

Before I let my daughter dig in I explained to her what it means when someone or something is camouflage and also told her besides the big snake there is many other animals in this box and seen if without touching it if she could find any.
When she did not I let her dig in and find them while I explained why some animals use camouflage and to always watch out for animals that do.

When she decided she was done playing I made sure to explain also that these are toy animals and she is never to grab or go near a real wild animal. That she is to respect nature!

We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
